5/7 Family Fun: Nature Journaling in the Redwoods

Nature journaling is a fun way to connect with nature, learn about our surroundings, and find wonder all around. Families are invited to join us for a walk through the redwoods as Museum educators Ellen Stone and Rocio Sanchez-Nolasco lead us through nature journaling prompts. Materials will be provided, but families are welcome to bring their favorite art tools.
